Was worth it for the first 15 ft, I clipped the bolt then dropped in a small tricam and made the fun move. Walk to summit from there and do the jump across for added fun.

Went up silhouette this morning, and there was a huge nest mid way through south crack. We didn't actually see a bird so we didn't let the rangers know. Please keep your eyes out if you decide to go up! If you find out it's active it might be worth letting the rangers know, better the crag gets shut down than someone gets hurt
